do not share outside the justice department, outside the f.b.i. the facts of ongoing investigations. we made the determination as we were going through the matter that there was not a threat to national security. had we made the determination that a threat to national security existed, we would, of course, had made that known to the president and also to the appropriate members on the hill. but as we went through the investigation, looked at the facts and tried to examine them as they developed, we were very -- we felt e very secure in the knowledge that a national security threat did not exist that warranted the sharing of that information with the white house or the hill. but when we got to a point in the investigation and it was very late in the investigation after a very critical interview occurred on the friday before we made that disclosure, when we got to that point when we thought it was appropriate to share the information, we did so. >> thank you.

to the fbi and the authorities or there are some ceos that don't want to do that because they don't want their customers to know they've been hacked. >> it's a hard decision. i don't think the right answer is that you have to go to the fbi in every single case. but what ceos should recognize is there are some people in the government who can help out. the fbi has a lot of capacity and they could help mitigate the overall risk to some of these cyber intrusions. department of homeland security with the department of defense can be helpful. usually in one of the attacks the first attack you discover is not really what you should be worried about. meanwhile all of your intellectual property flows out the door for two years or secret information about transactions you may be working on is going to another country or another firm. if you see one incident it's worth it as a leader to take it sear yuzly and probably go to the fbi. >> should you assume everything in your e-mail is being read by somebody else? >> you should not assume everything is being read by the government. we of course take t

't compromise national security. the context is a little clearer... about the f-b-i agent who helped start the investigation that led to petraeus' downfall. there were reports frederick humphries sent a photo of himself without a shirt on... to several people, including a woman named jill kelley, back in 2010. well, this appears to be the photo... it shows him after a "swat" practice, posing between two shirtless and bald dummies with the caption: "which one's fred?" jill kelley went to humphries and told him she was receiving harassing emails from an anonymous person. that person turned out to be paula broadwell. jill kelley sent several emails to her mayor in tampa florida... complaining she was receiving threats. she wrote them in the early hours of tuesday and wednesday. she said her three children are scared, and her husband can't return home from work because there's so much media blocking the driveway. she also stated the truth will one day prevail in this scandal. kelly recently called the police and asked for diplomatic protection... citing her role as honorary consul to south

was concerned, we went through a timeline. we went through representatives, the cia, and the fbi, and i think when members were able to see the time line, the sense was still the same. you have a group of extremists who took it vantage of the situation, and we lost four american lives. there were representatives from al qaeda and other groups. you had individuals with the ability to shoot mortars, and i think it shows it was a terrorist attack of sophistication. whether these people gain expertise from being in benghazi or being out there and fighting from that process, that is one thing. we are still focusing on the people who did it. we need to bring them to justice and make sure how this event occurred. so we learn from this so the american people will be protected in the future. >> what is the status of the fbi investigation? >> investigation on what? >> no lead or no witnesses to talk to? >> i think we need to have them work with the intelligence committee to attempt to identify who coordinated the attacks, and i think this is an ongoing investigation trying to get the intelligence commu
